FanDuel NBA DFS Lineup Picks (2/15/18): Daily Fantasy Basketball Advice


If you haven't noticed, there are only two games on the today's slate. That's because it is All-Star Weekend and these players are ready for a break. There is no reason to fade any superstars tonight and most of the top players have solid matchups. Isaiah Thomas, Jeff Teague, Eric Bledsoe and Andrew Wiggins round out the guards worth consideration, while Taj Gibson, Nikola Jokic and Julius Randle cap off the forwards.

There is only so much value out there, but some of these picks can free you up cap space to roster as many top-tier players that FanDuel will allow. Tonight is going to be the most experienced DFS players and there's no reason not to consider yourself in that grouping. Even if you might not be, some of these picks might help you get there, let's get rolling.

Below you will find our daily fantasy basketball lineup picks for FanDuel on 2/15/18. These DFS lineup picks can vary from higher-priced players and elite options, to lower-priced players and value picks on FanDuel. You can also read more DFS lineup picks for DraftKings and other sports too.

FanDuel DFS Guards

Sean Kilpatrick - PG/SG vs. DEN ($3,400)

Starting things off strong, we have yet to see an elongated Sean Kilpatrick emergence in a Bucks uniform. He's due for a big game and the injury to Malcolm Brogdon has really opened up a small window for him to carve himself out a role. His minutes are directly based on how well he is playing at that exact moment, but the best thing about Kilpatrick is that defense is arguably pointless. When Kilpatrick is hitting, he's hitting and there's nothing defense can really do about it. Ultimately, betting on Sean Kilpatrick is risky, but he is absolutely due for a big game and the Milwaukee guard situation is enough of a clusterbomb that Kilpatrick is a viable option every night, he just needs to be hitting.

Also Consider: Kentavious Caldwell-Pope  - SG @ MIN ($5,100)

Gary Harris - SG, @ MIL ($5,900)

At first, I kind of glossed over Gary Harris. I don't know why, but at second glance, his price started to stick out more and more. Against the Bucks, there is no way he doesn't have the advantage going in. Harris is a complete player with a knack for hitting threes. The Bucks might rank in the top ten against opposing shooting guards, but since the Bucks have such little help in the paint, I'm going with a Nugget-offensive onslaught starting with Jokic, bleeding into Harris' production. This is going to be a good game and while the Bucks might have the defensive advantage, the Nuggets have the talent to give any defense trouble. Much of that starts with Harris and him giving Jokic the proper spacing he needs to work.

 

FanDuel DFS Forwards

Nemanja Bjelica - SF vs. LAL ($3,500)

Look at that price. As a three point shooter his upside is dependent on his efficiency, but he's facing a defense that regularly gives up way too many shots. The Lakers rank in the bottom of the league when it comes to opposing field goal attempts, meaning they give up more than most teams. Although Nemanja Bjelica only took one shot yesterday, which was his only stat, that is extremely unorthodox. Normally, he contributes across the board and that trend should continue tonight.

Thon Maker - PF vs. DEN ($4,100)

The Bucks frontcourt offense should be more centered on Thon Maker, but he still struggles in certain situations. While his struggles are obvious, his price is incredibly low and it's hard for him to get "zero" stats. He is not a strong rebounder but his height gives him an advantage which should be ore than evident tonight. The Nuggets rank closer to the bottom in defensive stats while the Bucks hover near the top. The Bucks will need to have proficient offense if they want to keep up with the Nuggets and they will need production from bench players but most importantly Maker.

Also Consider: Darrell Arthur  - PF @ MIL ($3,400)

 

FanDuel DFS Centers

Tyler Zeller - C vs. DEN ($3,900)

Another Buck frontcourt player benefiting from the massive opening in minutes since the John Henson injury. Tyler Zeller has his moments of greatness, just like he has his mishaps. Luckily, he is a capable big man and is coming off his best game in Milwaukee. He only needs a few minutes to be able to produce, but there is still risk. Zeller has played atleast 20 minutesthe last two games, which is a first since joining the Bucks. He will get the minutes and the upside is there. Zeller could be the ideal cheap option at center.
